Just for fun, I thought I’d post a screen capture of Google’s new “streaming” search results that update in real time as you modify your search query. It’s best viewed in full screen or HD mode.
As with the search suggestions that all the major engines use now, this will likely change SEO for most marketers as we are going to have to contend with more “eye candy” that could distract searchers from our desired search results.
While real-time search suggestions may add some value to people searching for broad terms, real-time search results are distracting and confusing at first. I’m not sure if I’ll get used to them or not, but it does seem to add some amount of unnecessary distraction.
What do you think? Have you seen these results in the wild yet?
